Powder Board- Burton Floater 163?
 
So I am taking a trip out to colorado and I am planning on bringing a second board just for powder. Its my old school Burton Floater in size 163. Will that be good enough for strictly riding deeper powder??

I currently will be riding a 2013 Smokin Superpark wide 159 (will be coming with me also) and I have a Burton Twin 161 that was just replaced by the Smokin. I am sure the twin wouldnt work and its the 2005 model.

I just read a ton of shit about new technology and bla bla bla, lol, so I was just seeing what people thought about the older tech (2000).

I wouldn't buy a powder board for one trip. Get out here, then if we get a good deep day while you're here, just demo a pow stick.

I used to ride the floater and had a blast on it. Honestly though if your new board has rocker you aren't really going to gain anything. The recommendation to demo real powder boards is a good one though.

Well the Floater has been sitting on the wall for years since I have been riding my burton twin for the last 7 years. I think the floater i got in 99. IT was time for a new board and thats why I picked up the SMokin superpark the other day, still using the same P1 bindings though that I picked up about 5 years ago.

I will probably just rent a powder board like you said. Thanks guys......
